I have a 2012 manual Accent, and the eco setting for manuals is just a "reminder" light that tells you to shift up sooner, like the automatics do, ah, automatically. This often keeps the rpms below 2,000, but this fun little engine still gives you enough to accelerate.
I leave the eco on, so it kind of subliminally gets me to shift sooner and get a little better mileage. But I can ignore it when I need to at any time. This is a very fun little 6 speed! I like having control of the shift points, and it's a very smooth shifter.
I think the manual only gets 1 or 2 more mpgs than auto., but costs about $700-$1,000 less.
Even though the Accent was recently downgraded to 32 mpg/combined, after over a year, I'm getting 35.3 mpg with about 50/50 city/hwy driving.
I'm very happy with this "entry-level" vehicle! :-)

90 mpg?!! Is that the European diesel/hybrid/solar Fiesta?!
